For a Fistful of StoriesA gravedigger with a spooky talent. A Mexican rancher taking on a ruthless cattle baron. A saloon regular with a quick temper and a busy trigger-finger. A young girl with a dangerous thirst for freedom. An Indian opium addict from a dying culture.

Spanning 24 stories, poems and vignettes, 'For a Fistful of Stories' reimagines the Wild West of 1869 from a modern perspective. Grab a whiskey and enjoy shootouts between friend and foe in a dusty, muddy town. Life in little Bewstown can at times be humorous, tragic, exciting — and survival often proves a true hardship.
